COP8 Policy Briefing: Heated Tobacco Products

Key Recommendations

  • Heated tobacco products (HTP) meet the definition of tobacco products under the FCTC. No decision by the COP is required to ensure the relevant articles apply and Parties are urged to ensure that HTPs, including heating devices, are properly covered in their legal regimes.
  • In view of the relatively recent development of several HTP products and the rapid growth in marketing and sales in some countries, Parties may wish to mandate the Secretariat to request a report from WHO on relevant scientific, regulatory and marketing information.
